Did you work at the Standard or Standard Triumph
 – at Canley or any of the associated sites/companies associated with Triumph? If so we’d love to hear from you to build a database of names associated with the Standard and Triumph company. Read More HERE.

To add a name, click on the ‘Submit a Name’ link below.
Please use the format: Smith, John in the name field, then add a description; here you can include your role, location, service dates etc plus any other info you think may be of interest, finishing with your name (you may be submitting on behalf of a family member). Don’t worry how much – or little – you write in the description box – everything helps!
PLEASE NOTE: By using the ‘submit name’ element on the site we DO NOT get any record of you or your email and sometimes we’d love to get in touch with you, but we can’t! Please either drop your email details on the entry (don’t worry we won’t publish that) or a separate email to say hello. Thank you.

  • Tom Braund - I started at The Standard in August 1960 as a 16 year old Junior Clerk in the Cost Office at Fletch South working for Doug Swan (recently deceased).
  • Canley Closing – Photos - These photos are believed to have been taken towards the very end of the life of the Canley Standard Triumph plant.
  • Service School - Three photographs showing the inside of the Standard Triumph Service School.
  • Canteen - There were a number of canteens on all the sites, from Banner Lane to Canley, to cater to all the workers at the factory. Here is a remarkable photo of one of them.
  • Gary Daffron, Security Officer - Memories of Work at Triumph Motors I worked at Triumph Motors from 1969 to 1987 when it closed.
  • Terry Donnelly - I started my working life in the apprentice training school at Capmartin Road September 1960 as an apprentice maintenance electrician.
  • Jabbeke Speed Test – Original Standard Triumph period film - Original Standard Triumph period film of the Jabbeke speed test featuring TR2 prototype MVC575. This car has recently been restored.  The film shows Sir John Black and Ken Richardson. Can you help with other names?
  • Herald Coupe – 4 Minute Build Car, 1959 - A great period photo showing the build-up team of apprentices for the launch of the Triumph Herald at the Royal Albert Hall in 1959.
  • Running in – 1974 - As a past employee of B.L. Triumph U.K. Ltd., I read the “Tale of a TR6” by the Assistant Editor (of Motorsport Magazine) with great interest.
  • Jaguar – and the Standard Motor Co. - “Jaguar owed a lot to The Standard.” Comment from an old Midlands car man, recalled the other day when I was given the engaging Review of the Standard Motor Club. Hard to believe it’s an all-but-forgotten make that used to be one of the biggest motor manufacturers in Britain. It was, literally, a standard-bearer in Coventry.
